High school can seem like merely a joke to many adults; they see it as a time of no real importance aside from the cliché idea that “high school is where you find yourself.” But to teenagers, there is no time that is more important because this is our “now.” This means that many of us take high...

With progress reports just around the corner and the third quarter soon coming to an end, stress is bound to build up.

Why we need more feminists

When people hear the word feminism, it comes with a negative connotation. They think of the stereotypical idea of a feminist that doesn’t shave, and can be found at rallies standing up for women’s rights. I believe that we should change the way people see the word feminism, because after all, stereotyping...

I think we all know that college has become more than an investment in our education, rather it has become an investment that we’ll be paying off for the rest of your life. For some of use, our loans will exceed $100,000, an amount that will accumulate interest just as fast as you can pay your $1,500–a–month...

Spending money is human nature, but it’s what we spend it on that is something that we need to take into consideration. I do find that students who have money spend it on the most useless things, like 10 new phone cases, Energy Drinks, or simply because “Hey why not”? Honestly, it’s important...

The single life can be a happy time or a terribly, terribly sad one. It’s like being freed from the ball and chain. You are no longer subject to buying your significant other a certain thing that was shown on Twitter as “relationship goals,” and you don’t have to respond to their text five minutes...

Ah yes, Valentine’s Day. ‘Tis the day to spoil your significant other, and it is also the ideal day to curl up in a corner and question your life choices as you cough up hundreds of dollars in order to please the parasite known as your boyfriend or girlfriend.

In the first few months of the New year it’s not uncommon to see people focusing on their personal resolutions in hopes of changing for the better.

Filed under Editor Column - Cameron Petit, Opinion

If Biddeford is known for one thing, it has always been its love for and dedication to athletics. As long as I can remember, BHS sporting events, particularly football and boys hockey, have brought in more die–hard fans than one would imagine. Sitting in the bleachers of the 2007, 2008, and 2010 Boys...
